Seven Story Drop is a rock band from Dallas, Texas,[1] founded in 2000 by lead singer Jeff Current and bass guitarist Chris Dietz.

Having shared the stage with Seven Mary Three, Stroke 9, Sponge, Journey, 38 Special, Tracii Guns of LA Guns/Brides of Destruction, Zac Maloy of The Nixons, Edgewater, Vanilla Ice, and Great White. Our sound is similar to the styles of Shinedown, Fuel, Saliva, Filter,Three Days Grace, Nickelback, Breaking Benjamin, Foo Fighters, Oleander, Incubus, Dark New Day, and Seether.

Jeff Current adds, "Even though the vocals are the key in our music...we pay great attention to detail in the instrumentation aspect of our music as well. The rhythm section takes pride in being tight as well as the guitar catching all the little intricate hits and stops. The vocals are very strong, and finding the perfect mix of music behind the vocal melody is really our formula. We're not writers of complicated, or complex pieces of music. Everything is geared toward radio. We just want to catch the ear, and stick in the head."


In 2004, the band was featured on 97.1 FM. In 2008-2010 SSD was featured on 102.1 TheEdge, 99.3 The Bone, 96.1The Eagle and countless Internet radio websites with live shows and interviews.[2]

The band was named as one of Dallas' Top Ten Bands by Harder Beat magazine in 2001, "#1 Band in Dallas" by Barstar.com in 2002, and recommended for "Rock Album of the Year", "Rock Band of the Year" and "Acoustic Performance of the Year" at the 2004 Dallas Local Music Awards.[3]

The band has released two albums entitled Gravity and Skeletons.[2]

After eight years playing with Seven Story Drop, Current left for the opportunity to work with Jimmy Allen in Against All Will.[4] He left AAW very soon after. Their song "Last Man Standing" from Gravity was used in the movie No Pain, No Gain.[3] "How Do You Like Me Now" from Skeletons was chosen by 93.3 FM KDBN in September 2008 as the official song for the Dallas Cowboys NFL football team promotions and broadcasts.[5][6]
